Coping with conflict, fragility, and violence is a great challenge to many countries. More than half of the partner countries of the German bilateral development cooperation10 are affected. Germany’s support for these countries is a key contribution towards their sustainable development, taking not only the developmental implications into account but also recognising that fragile states and conflict affected areas pose a risk to regional and global security. This poses professional challenges when operationalising development cooperation interventions.
